Lake, Mississippi headwaters, Lake Itasca, reflection, sunset, fiery sky, pastel, painting, realistic, JBL-Art, Barrie Leigh


The setting sun created a blanket of vibrant rusts and reds, late on a July evening. The headwaters of the Mississippi river are unseen here, hidden by the dense ponderosa pines. [Clouds, sky and water painted in PanPastels high-pigment paints. Ponderosas and special effects for water and sky added with hand-made Mungyo soft pastel sticks and Bruynzeel pastel pencils. Painted on acid-free Sennelier 200 lb sanded paper.]
